I guess I'll see you in motorcycle hell since I've been slowly getting rid of my red too
At first I added red (red ASV levers, red bar ends), then I flipped 180 and removed the red R panels, painted heat shield black, paint newly acquired red bar ends black, now I'm spying the red subframe. I've been doing some flat black checkerboard vinyl in various places too! Tried to flat black plasti-dip the R panels and even tried wrapping them, but they still look funny to me, so they're gone. I've got some more plans for vinyl, but I'm stuck on the tank decals that Triumph decided to clear coat
I've owned 3 red bikes in the past, but I feel that black is the new red, haha!! My bike is a 2014 charcoal R btw.
I feel like this goes without saying, but.....PICS! haha
As for the tank decals..there's a fella who turned his white (not sure if R or not) into a white and orange. I believe he's posted here and on the rat forum. He managed to get some orange decals working. I'm not sure if he took off the clear coat, if he just overlaid orange ones, or maybe painted a stencil. If I can find him on here, I'll point you in his direction.
As for me, today...nothing, because Maryland weather decided to go from 60s/70s to a wintery mix today. Was going to give her a much needed rinse after the past few rides, but that will have to wait. I finally got in touch with my guy about some custom sliders. It's not a full cage, which I was originally thinking I wanted, but more along the lines of race rails. Hopefullyy I can get them working soon...as we had first discussed it last August, but it never came into fruition. Not complaining...people get busy, things happen, etc.; but, I am looking to add a little somethin-somethin soon! Also, looking to purchase some new bar ends, as I no longer like the aftermarket (cheaper) ones I have. They're one of the Triumph bar end replicas.
Additionally, just a little something kind of exciting, I had my first encounter with another 2013+ Street Triple two nights ago (or was it three?).
